Rubio Falters......Will the "Establishment" Look Elsewhere

       Call it  choke, or nerves, but Senator Marco Rubio confirmed what many have suspected and that is he is a robotic and shallow candidate not ready to lead his party in the race for the White House.
      Under a withering cross from Governor Chris Christie, the witness cracked, with Senator Rubio repeating four times a memorized diatribe against President Obama.
      Suddenly 'big mo' abndoned the third place Iowa finisher and the talk till Tuesday will be about the halting and erratic performance and the resulting deer in the headlights stare.
      For the other candidates, a mostly solid night with Donald Trump and Jeb Bush having a good night, while Governor John Kasich widely thought to have advanced his cause.
      The analysts on all the nets agreed. Marco Rubio had a bad night.

I didn't see it that way at all. I thought they all did well. It was clear that the others now see Rubio as the main threat. But there was no faltering on Rubio's part.

I didn't watch it but watched all the others. The clips I saw did not make Rubio look bad. What is wrong with repeating the truth five times? And I say that from the point of view that Rubio is not in my top three picks. It is a fact that Obama knew what he was doing and he threw away all our gains in Iraq and let devout Muslims take over much more of the middle east. and destroyed our healthcare system even worse than it already was.

Also, the clips released by ABC of the screw up on the introductions, is a 100% reflection of ABC and the fact they are trying to make all the candidates look bad. Did the announcer not notice the missing candidates? Of course he did, yet he kept going.

Rubio is done , the kid played like a kid trying out for the varsity who had never even had big boy sneakers on ! Christy found the key to beating this speech maker !

Kasich looked very good and like the adult in the room . Was Ben awake ?? Cruz looks and sounds "canned "to me too

Kasich and Christy in a dead heat as to who won imho .

I thought most of the candidates looked good. The moderators were giving the establishment candidates far more air time, which ended up hurting Rubio. Trump has got this one in the bag and future competition seems limited to Cruz.

It is good to hear what Graham and 8:02 think. I mean, just because they will vote for Hillary or Bernie doesn't mean their opinion of the GOP candidates doesn't matter.

Again, the "media jackals" do not report, but comment. A job of a reporter is to REPORT not comment. Marco Rubio is the best choice. If the jackals beat up on him it must be that he is better than they thought.

I laugh at all of yu.. Dream on but the big establishment has put the pressure on the networks to give Bush that come from behind victory that I predict... Dont be fooled Bush will win out in the end....

Gee Mister Dick, you ought to offer a wager to someone like Graham. You are as ridiculous as the guy who is betting against the Harvard Gal. I am sure you could get ten to one odds for a Bush bet too.

In case you were in a coma for the last six months and didn't noticed what took place, the media has been trying to sabotage the GOP leaders for six months and they failed miserably. In fact, every time they attacked Trump, he grew in popularity. It ain't over till its over...but its over for Bush.

Laughable. Anyone can see that the path is already laid out for the Rubio nomination.
If you aren't seeing it, you are only denying the inevitable.

Oh, and yes, Donnie will win NH.
But don't get too excited about that. He will not get the GOP nod in the end.
